Hi - I’ve been using pse7 on my Windows10 pc only to organize my photos.  I’ve saved metadata to files, put tags, captions, keywords on every photo(@10,000). 

My daughter is a MAC user and wants no part of  PSE new or old or any other program like Lightroom for organizing.   

I’m at the stage where I need to get these photos onto her Mac. I have a recent full catalog backup on an External hard drive. We will NOT be using any PSE organizer other than windows on a pc or iPhoto on her Mac. 

Without pse7 or newer I guess my backup is worthless (as I know it’s just a copy of the original photos)?

 

Is there any way to save any of the tags or keywords to the photos on the pc (windows) original photos  after I uninstall PSE7? 

 

Whats the best way to prepare to stop using pse7 but retain some info other than EXIF info ?

thank you!!

Try the Windows Explorer 'File properties', section 'details' and enter keywords and caption ('comments'). Or use an external exif editor.

Anyway, keep your backup ready. What you have already 'written to files' is still available to most third party editors.

Hi,

 

You can select all the media, and choose File->Write Keyword Tags and Properties Info to Photos. This will write all tags and Keywords to the Details section of the image.

Thanks so much for your help again Michel. I just did what you told me to do and it makes my life easier. I can click each keyword tag( ie.italy vacation) in PSE  and open info and then location to find those photos in windows and then tag them all at once directly!  You’re a real life saver! Much appreciated. Beth
